Memphis with Mama-The End

We planned to sleep in late on Friday.  We did.  We left the house at one o’clock and headed to lunch at Alcenia’s in downtown Memphis. Its a teeny, tiny place with a lot of love.  Food isn’t cooked until ordered so please keep that in mind.

It was for sure a Soul Food Lunch.  4-IMG_1175 5-IMG_1176 6-IMG_1177

This made me laugh….Ghetto Aid!



After lunch we headed to the Stax musuem.  This was cool.  Unfortnately the orginal studio was torn down such a shame.  To see some of the clothes was too funny.  Shorts and boots…LOL.  Whoa Rufus Thomas! Some of the artists I knew but my mom new them ALL!






Ok Isaac Hayes 24 Karat Gold plated Cadillac was over the top..talkin’ about Pimp my ride!

It was also super cool to see an Oscar in person too!


We finished the night with dinner at Strano, a Sicilian Kitchen and Bar.

The atmosphere was great. The restaurant located in the Cooper Young neighborhood was very charming.  Surrounding by several restaurants this restaurant is definitely a keeper.  We made reservations due to our Groupon and were seated right away.

The Goat cheese bruschetta……was Killer!




We each order an entree and feasted! We left with 3 doggie bags:)

Well that concluded my 3 day trip.  I have a 5:45 am flight so we all crashed.  I had a blast…stay tuned for mother day.
